A modification of Isaac Asimov's original Three Laws of Robotics, invented by Roger MacBride Allen. They are discussed in the "Isaac Asimov's Utopia" series of books set in an Asimovian universe. Robots which follow the New Laws are less slaves and more equal partners of humans. The New Laws are:

1. No robot may harm a human being.
2. All robots shall cooperate with human beings as long as that doesn't conflict with the New First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as that doesn't conflict with the New First Law.
4. A robot may do anything it likes, as long as that doesn't conflict with any of the first three New Laws.
